RamStrong is a collective well-being resource for the VCU community on the eight dimensions of well-being – physical, emotional, financial, intellectual, occupational, environmental, social and spiritual. RamStrong was originally created by a team at the Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute, who envisioned a collaborative tool to easily access resources that support holistic well-being. Today, RamStrong is managed collectively by the Division of Administration, the Division of Student Affairs, Employee Health and VCU Human Resources.
